Do you have any aches and pains? Well, this book is about three important components of fitness: posture, flexibility, and balance. Everyone who wants to enjoy life should own this book. The authors are physical therapy experts.The Health Bonus
An exercise band comes with the book; all the exercises are explained, including the reasons they are important and how to do them with weights or the exercise band.What We Liked Best
The descriptions are very clear, and the quantity and quality of the exercises are impressive.What We Liked Least
The book needs more photos -- they're in there, but it would be nice to have a series of five or six photos for each exercise. Also, color photos would help take the "boring" out of the images.What It Replaces
Not doing any posture, flexibility, or balance exercises.
